Fellow student Tamara, shared a magical experience in her son’s Year 1 classroom here. This blew me away! Another fantastic resource at our finger tips. I intend to explore the Moo-O site over the next couple of days in the hope of using it during my Practicum at a Special School. This is a perfect way to get engagement, participation and interaction happening across the curriculum. I am so glad Tamara took the time to share this resource with us.
Another site I am considering using during Prac is Aurasma, an augmented reality app (AR) which is one of a myriad of new AR apps becoming available. This is a little tricky to use at first (I tried it on my iPhone) but is REALLY effective when mastered. One example I viewed, was a printed picture of a poet. Once Aurasma was activated, by simply focusing the phone on the picture, the poet pulled a drink out from behind his waistcoat and started reciting one of his poems! MASSIVE.
This is a link to see the poet come alive on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ncFAxN9Gu9g
